Perhaps the most exciting thing I have discovered recently is that you can buy a copy of the Great Expectations manuscript, published by the Cambridge University Press. It includes annotations and revisions made by the author. What a great way of seeing his thought processes as he was writing this intense and descriptive novel. Here is a link to the page where you can find out more and buy a copy:
I also do not think you should see the film without having read the book (others would disagree!), so here are some links to Amazon where you can buy the book, either in hard copy (Wordsworth Classics, £1.99) or for your Kindle (free!). Happy reading!
